Worldwide Families

    As the population of expatriate families continues to grow, there comes a need for resources to address the common challenges that come with living overseas.

     While there are a number of websites available for Third Culture Kids and some sources of information on culture shock for adults, this site seeks to look at the big picture of the family as a whole, from the initial preparations to re-entry to the parents' country.
